Summary: I finally upgraded to this 10.2 megapixel camera. The main reason for getting it was the 1280 high def video recorder. I thought it was 60 fps, but the HD is at 30, which is better than the average 15 fps. It does shoot 60 fps at 320. You cant beat the 10x zoom, and this incredible lens. I rarely use the "auto" mode, and the "P" personal mode is ok for making adjustments.
Summary: This camera has been very good so far in the time that I have had it. It takes good to great pictures depending on the situation. It takes HD 720p video. The best part of it in my opinion is the zooming capabilities. It is a fairly compact camera, but it has a megazoom lens. It has a 10x optical zoom lens, and a 5x digital zoom. It really helps when you need to get those shots when you are at a distance.
